how to maintain attachments in powerapps .?

Hi Mates,

SQL Table




Title: Input Control

Attachment: Attachment control


as per requirement, I need to save attachments in the SharePoint folder. but actually, we have to use SQL table to save form/metadata field values.

Also when users edit the item corresponding attachment has to refer in form.

How do I save/maintain SharePoint only for attachment? 

During submitting a new item how to convert base64 formate and update that URL in SQL for corresponding attachment.

Please assist me.

Re: how to maintain attachments in powerapps .?

Hi I think I would try this....


1) I would display whatever data you want form Sql Server and retrieve the Data Record ID.

2) I would take the image and save it along with the SQL data record ID to SharePoint this can be done with nested forms in a screen.

3) then have another hiden form that will send the SharePoint URL to Sql server on an update to the original record.


You could write a bunch of code but this is an easy way out and also is the most efficient way for POWERAPPS to do the task "in my view"
